ABC Wins Wednesday Night as Its Each Series Grow/"Nashville" Is Up for 3rd Straight Original

As each of its series grew over their most recent original telecasts in early December, ABC won Wednesday night in Adults 18-49 over original programming on each of the other nets, including CBS with The People's Choice Awards. ABC's Modern Family qualified as Wednesday's #1 TV show for its 10th straight original telecast across all key Adult demos (AD18-34/AD18-49/AD25-54). ABC earned its top-rated Wednesday since early November in Adults 18-49 with regular programming on the night - since 11/7/12.

At 8pm, ABC's The Middle won its half-hour in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49. The Middle was up over its most recent original 4 weeks ago by 15% in viewers and by 14% in young adults to its best numbers since 11/14/12.

At 8:30pm, ABC freshman The Neighbors ranked #1 in Adults 18-49, beating NBC's freshman Guys with Kids by 65% in viewers and by a best-ever 54% in young adults.

A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 47% currently, from 43% at the same point in 2012. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.
